What you put in a topic/post/node before you reveal anything that might spoil the experience of a play/film/book/game for anyone reading your words, who has not experienced what you are writing about.

A courtesy usually found in Movie threads where those who have seen the film want to talk about it, but don't want to give away a surprise in the film.

In forums where html is allowed a spoiler is often coded in white so you have to run your mouse over the words to even see them.

The spoiler alert is usually ALL CAPS to make sure someone knows a spoiler is ahead.
